XTR Shadow rear derailleur

After the launch of the 25th anniversary 2008 XT group, Shimano announced the same Shadow low profile technology for the 2008 XTR group, making the derailleur less prone to get crushed in a crash, less chance of getting something stuck in it with it's 11-13mm lower profile and at the same time, making it faster/crispier with a more direct cable pull routing and it also becomes the lightest mountain rear derailleur ever from the giant from Japan. The cage is not a cosmetic carbon like SRAM X.0, it's a full carbon cage, available in medium or long. The medium cage weighs 180 grams while the long cage hits a hefty 182 grams. The unit is Top-Normal.
